We were lucky to spend one week of surfing and Spanish course in this little paradise. The perfect sunset school is surrounded by tropical forest and lies within 5 min from the most gorgeous beach I ve ever been to - playa hermosa. What we really enjoyed about the surfing classes, were the indepth instructions matched to our ability as...

The week we spent in the PSS was perfect! The surf lessons with Gustavo were great as he gave very helpful, individual technical feedbacks and pushed us to a higher level. His passion for surfing is contagious. The Yoga lessons are in a very nice spot (Pranamar Retreat) a few minutes away from the camp and with a great teacher....

I stayed for 2 weeks, and took the Spanish classes only, but I deeply regret not taking the surfing lessons also. It was definitely an unforgettable experience, and totally exceeded my expectations. It is not easy to have in a short trip that sensation of really experiencing the place. After a week, I already felt at home. At Perfect Sunset...

Our family with kids ages 13, 10, 7, spent over 2 weeks with Gustavo and crew for surf and Spanish. Gustavo was very accommodating and flexible. He worked great with the kids(and parents), and even helped me change a flat tire on my car! He loves to surf and it is obvious, Spanish lessons great for everyone as well.

After a pretty busy year I was hoping for a relaxing and surf intense time in Costa Rica. As a Costa Rica first timer I did not get disappointed at all. The people I met and Gustavo/ The perfect sunset school added that extra bit to a great experience. Playa Hermosa is perfect for those who appreciate the simple things;...

You cannot find a more authentic experience, perfect location just 5 minutes walk to the most beautiful beach in Santa Theresa, Gustavo aka "el patron" is a great Spanish teacher, the Spanish course is much more than two hours a day, it's a full week interaction. Be prepared to be fully immersed in the typical Tico life style, hang out...

I came to the perfect sunset school looking to improve my surfing and get a jumpstart on learning Spanish. What I didn't realize was how amazing it would be to meet and hang out with locals and other travelers from all over the world. Gustavo, professor extraordinaire, is a very warm and welcoming host. He makes sure you are comfortable...

I came to Costa Rica looking for an authentic and grassroots way to improve my Spanish , and couldn't have chosen a better place.
